help with plant

Hello, We have a Jasmine plant with green berries on.  Do we clip these off or leave them alone?  Also, we have been given two pots with a green and red pepper in.  At the moment they are in 6" pots.  Could you advise please what size pots they will require?  Pat

    When my peppers have filled the 6 inch pots, i pot on just once more into 8/9 inch. Put a sturdy cane in, they get  heavy as they grow big


    I always take the lower buds off for a start to

     allow the plant to grow big and sturdy before flowering.I sometimes go over the flowers with a paint brush, just a little tickle to make sure they are pollinated, not sure if this is really need though. I dont get many bees in my conservatory so just to make sure. I am sure that someone more knowledgable than me will soon correct.
